Robert (larrett, Rsq., 


Hy dear Mr, Barrett; 

There were no proof sets coined last year, the Icvemment 


having discontinued then, and none will he struck in the future, 

I have laid aside for you the 1916 coins as fellows; 

Quarter dollar, dime, nickel and cent, old type. 

Half dollar, quarter dollar and dine new * 

also the half and quarter dollar of 1917, and as quickly as the other coins come out 

will keep them together and put them in the cabinet at Princeton on my visit 

there, which I hope will be shortly. 

There has been no gold struck at the Philadelphia Mint, and I have 

been unable to find out what has been struck at the other ’-ints but intend getting 

one of each struck.

Dear Mr, Garrett • “ C 

The coinage of the San Francisco Exposition coins has all oeen melted 
down with the exception of those which were sold. The set 1 offered you at $235, is 
the same set sold by the commission at in 1S15, and all those remaining unsold at 

the time, were melted down, so that it has left only about five hundred in existence of 
the $50 gold pieces. I, myself, paid $400, cash a few days ago for the two sets, one 
of which I have since sold to a New York gentleman, and homing sold it I an willing to 
make a concession of $10, in the price to make a quick turn over o' t>e money an* give 
you tic set for $225. 

The set I am offering you is either the twenty-second or twenty-fourth 
set struck, in original envelopes as certified by the Superintendent of the Mint, and 
coming to me by a high official of the Government. Only that I got these two sets, I 
would not know where to duplicate them. ks far as I knew, no dealer stocked them. 

I, mysel", Lave handled about twelve of the full sets, sending some of 

them to Europe. 


I have been endeavoring to secure the gel ' coins struck at t v e branch 
mints for 1916, and air. promised them cn 'Wednesday next. 

1 am trying to get to Princeton the end of the reek and proceed with the 
work there, and if I do so, shall 1 deposit the coins in t^e cabinet. I could also de- 
posit the set of the San Francisco Exposition coins if desired. I have not forgotten 
you, or ray obligations at ^riaceton and T am doing ny utmost to get all my work moving

Dear Sir : 


Philadelphia, Ninth Mo 


NOTICE OF REMOVAL. 



2b. 191’ 






Offing to the large increase in my business and an ardent wish to be enabled to serve my 
customers in the future even better than in the past has impelled me to enlarge my facilities 
and I have purchased the four-story residence No. 333 and 335 South 16th St., N. E. Cor. 

16th & Pine Sts., two squares west of my old address. After nine months of rebuilding 
I am moving the 25th of this month into my new home, and in the new building I have three 
floors devoted exclusively to my Numismatic business. When all my stock is ticketed and 
arranged in the five large burglar-proof safes as well as some 25 cabinets, I will be able 
to display what I believe is the finest stock in America of Ancient and Modern Coins of 
the World. 


Recently I added two very important collections, those of the late R. A. Bowie, about 
11,000 coins of all Series, particularly rich in early French and German, and cost over 
$7,0*00; the W. H. Perot, U. S. N. , collection of about 8.000 coins in all Series in super- 
condition, costing over $28,000. 

My stock of Colonial and State Paper Money, 1690-1786, is unsurpassed. Also have a fine 
collection on sale of Confederate State Notes as well as Broken Bank Bills. 


Following my custom of upwards of 42 years devoted exclusively to dealing in Coins and 
Paper Money, every article will be marked in plain figures, and those as low as possible--my 
motto being, "Quick turn over of the money at prices advantageous to the buyer." I devote all 
my time to my Numismatic business and have no side lines to distract my attention. 

To Collectors establishing their responsibility I send liberal consignments on approval, 
thus enabling the intending purchaser to inspect the article at his convenience- -an item of 
no mean importance. 

Collections purchased for cash to any amount, or catalogued for sale at auction in a 
superior manner. I have held the two greatest sales ever made in the U. S. — M. A. Stickney 
collection, 1907, $37,921, and George H. Earle, Jr., collection, 1912, $55,800. 

Expert Appraisements made for individuals, estates, executors and institutions. 


A NEW MAILING LIST. 


Desiring to have on my mailing list only active collectors. I am requesting you to pleast 
check off the items representing those you are interested in on the enclosed card. Please 
attend to it at once, and be sure you sign your name, as from these reply cards the new list 
will be compiled. (Last time some 25 collectors checked and returned the cards but neglected 
to sign their name!) Should you have sold your collection and ceased to take any interest 
in coins, kindly inform me on the card and return it to me. 


I extend my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to all my customers, and their loyalty to me 
is an incentive to merit their further patronage by fair and liberal treatment; a pledge I 
gladly make and one it gives me great satisfaction to live up to. 

Trusting to receive a favorable reply and enjoy a continuance of vour valued patronage . 
I remain, 

Very sincerely, 


Bell Telephone. Locust 6755.

In looking at the American coins I find the following are absent and having them in

I would respectfully inform you tliat on November 1st I removed my office to my residence, 
1128 Spruce Street, which is in a more central location than the Drexel Building, which is on 


the corner of Chestnut and Fifth Streets, beside Independence Hall, in the old banking district. 


I have recently realized that my house of four stories, which I have owned for twenty 
years, is in the most convenient location for city and out-of-town patrons as it is in the very 
center of the city. 


Spruce is the principal residence street, and the second square south of Chestnut Street, 
our fashionable shopping street, and the third street from Market Street, our principal 
business street, and 1128 is near the comer of Twelfth Street, and thus only two squares 
east of Broad Street (or Fourteenth Street), on which are located between Spruce and Chest- 
nut Streets the principal hotels, Union League, Art, City and Manufacturers’ Clubs and on 
Walnut Street, just off Broad Street, the new Stock Exchange. The City Hall and the Penn- 
sylvania Terminal are at Broad and Market Streets, the Reading, Central Railroad of New 
Jersey, 1128 Market Street or Market and Twelfth Streets: the latter is the more beautiful 
and preferable route from New York. 


In my house I will have abundance of room where I will be glad to welcome and, with 
assiduous efforts I will endeavor, as always, to serve my patrons faithfully. 

I carry a fine stock of coins and medals in all series, from which I will be pleased to send 
selections on approval. 

I am always ready to purchase collections of fine and rare coins or to undertake the sale 
of them at auction, preparing catalogues with the greatest care and with the fullest descrip- 
tions commensurate with the value of the coins and when important with the finest plates 
photographed by myself, in which I believe I achieve the best results, due largely to the fact 

that you have the numismatist and photographer in the one person. Further information and 
terms cheerfully furnished. 

Yours faithfully,

Mr. Rolph C. Sharretto, 

Dear Sir, 

I an in receipt o.f your letter or 13th. The list or coins sent Ur. Garrett 
would have been quite a help in completing the collection. There la not much needed and if I 
had Ur. 'Garrett's order to complete them I could no doubt add from time to time the pieces 
that are short. Of those I quoted Ur. Garrett I will keep them in stock until I hear 
further from you as to whether he wishes them. Of those nuoted he would need only one of 
the 1846 quarter eagles to keep up the line of dates. Some of the others I find have been 

sent out on approval but I can practically supply all of those ouoted. 

There have been very few coins struck at the Mint during the last three years owing 
to no coining of gold so that keeping up the series is a snail matter. 

On my next trip to Princeton I will make a list of those lacking to complete the 


collection as far as dates and denominations are concerned.

Dear Dir: 

In view oi‘ the contents of your letter of liovenbor 

30th, in which you indicate that tuo continuity of coins has 
* 

been broken during war-times and for that reckon it is not es- 
sential at thin time to keup up the series, vo -ill not bother 
about any coino other than those mentioned, for purchase in my 

letter of the 13th. Please do not spend any tine on gotting 

0 

up the list of coins lacking from the collection. All that I 
was interested in are those of the last, lot us say, five years, 
but I hope you will not bother even about those. 

Yours very truly. 


Secretary to Ur. Garrott.

Sear Mr. Chapman: 

Mr* Garrett has ashed mo to find oat 
from you whethor the following medals have any valae and 

I 

any particular interest.. Tho; come from a relative of 
his recently deceased. In the collection there is one 
modal different from all the rest. It is a copper or 
bronze and is inscribed Janiaa Bratao. It is made by 
Dumarast. I have palled a proof from it, which I enclose, 
marked "A. " I also enclose a proof of one of a Berios of 
medals evidently portraying events in woman history. The 
proof which I have made is of Romulus, showing his pictaro, 
and on tho reverse showing tho Foundation of Rome. They 
aro evidently made by a French concern - F. Das 3 ier et Fils. 
This is the first of a sories of 55 medals. If the infor- 
mation I havo given is not sufficient 1 shall make somo moro 
impressions and send then to you, hat I presume yoa are fa- 
miliar with tho collection. 

Yours very truly, 


3:b. 


Secretary to Mr. Garrett.
